Hazy yellow. Nice white head. Lots of bubblegum in the aroma and flavor. the body is lively and maintains a lot of carbonation. A bit to sweet to enjoy regularly.

The beer pours a cloudy orange with a nice white head, good retention and lacing. The aroma is light, a little more citrus than you would expect in a saison, with a little wheat, and a slight bitter finish. The server described as super sweet, it was sweet for a saison but not super sweet, nor do I think its a traditional saison. The taste is also pretty light starting off with some citrus, then finishes with a slight sour bitter finish. Decent feel, nice carbonation and a fine dry finish. Overall, pretty good, a sweeter take on a saison.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Draft at Revolution. Pours a glowing, slightly hazy gold with fluffy offwhite head. Nose is nice, though a touch of cloves is not quite right. Fresh hops jump out, as well as citrusy and spicy notes. On taste, it is full flavored and full bodied with notes of the spicy hops shooting through with a quenching bitterness. Finishes dry. Damn fine saison, this one.

LilBeerDoctor (3422) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of yeast, grainy/rice malt, and spices. Flavor of yeast, bready malt, lots of spices (pepper) in the background, some tangy citrus. A good, spicy saison. 7/4/8/4/14 [3.7/5]

pantanap (3351) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Tap at rev... Pours a seemingly glowing tangerine orange with a quickly fading frothy white head... Assertive aroma of bright citrus notes, tangerine, and a touch of yeast... Flavors maintain that citrus profile which quickly develops into more of a hoppy earthy drying bitterness with some pepper in the finish. Outside of some prickly pepper, not much else in terms of spice. Carbonation pretty lively which seems to be a common trend... Not bad at all.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy, brighter orange colored body with an inch thick, dense and creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is pretty fruity with some juicy citrus tangerines, pears, sweeter florals, soft spices, yeasty earth, a light banana, and some sweeter malts with a light caramel and grain. Flavor is similar. Lots of juicy fruits up front with a good amount of sweet tangerines, oranges, pears, melons, and floral fruits. Nice yeasty spice and earth to balance along with a light grass, some banana, and a touch of bubblegum. Some grainy, medium sweet malts add to a rounded balance. Finishes dry and fruity with a nice spicing and light-medium bitterness. Lengthy, spicy and citrusy aftertaste following a medium body and fairly lively carbonation that works well with the juicy fruits and spices. Overall, a nice saison. Dry and balanced with a pretty cool juicy fruitiness. Nice malt sweetness to round things out making this very enjoyable. Good beer.

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2013
On tap @ Mikkeller Bar. Cloudy deep orange almost bronze in the glass with a small eventually fading just off-white top. Not extreme on the nose but some fruitiness shines through the emptiness. A bit of farm with some leafs and strawberry gel,. Lively carbo, oily mouthfeel. It’s dry, almost grape-dry actually. Some white vine, melon zest, cantaloupe, yeast, really astringent finish. Not allmightyquenchable, but more in the alright genre. One hand rating outside Mikkeller Bar. 03.05.2013

thegreenrooster (3174) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Pour is a murky tan with a large white head. Aroma is very fruity with some yeast and hops. Flavor starts out with very spicy hops and follows with a bit of lemon grass. Finish is a bit dry and thin. The beer is decent and has plenty to offer just nothing over the top.

JanLaursen (3025) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2013
Draft at Mikkeller Bar. Hazy golden, small white head. Spicy, fruity aroma with notes of hay, herbs, yeasty phenols and noble hops. Medium sweet malty, slightly astringent, peppery with a dry, medium bitter slightly metallic finish. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
